Day 26: All about Nikko
I can’t really talk too much about dieting or anything of the sort today. All I could do yesterday was wait in eager expectation for the arrival of our new kitten- Nikko. He is so adorable, sweet and fragile.
Our friend Maura found him abandoned in the park when he was only a couple of weeks old- he’s only about 3 weeks right now. We are so thankful to be part of his survival story. He is a survivor, a warrior!
His name comes from the village Nikko in Japan- our favorite place while we visited. It means SUNSHINE. The Japanese saying “Never say ‘kekko’ until you’ve seen Nikko”—kekko meaning beautiful, magnificent or “I am satisfied”—is a reflection of the beauty and sites in Nikkō.- WiKi.
With all the excitement I had to cook a special dinner- and Almond crusted salmon was just the thing.
Day 26 menu:
Breakfast: cottage cheese and pineapple and a poached egg
Lunch: Greek salad and hummus
Dinner: spinach and strawberry salad with almond breaded salmon. And a glass of wine to celebrate. The recipe is here: http://www.paleoplan.com/2009/12-03/almond-crusted-salmon/http://www.paleoplan.com/2009/12-03/almond-crusted-salmon/
